Java EE @ DevNexus 2017
I am very proud to say my company CapTech sponsored DevNexus for the very first time. We had a fully manned booth that saw very good traffic and we also sponsored a well attended happy hour.
MicroProfile initiative that aims to bring a collaborative, fast-paced, vendor-neutral approach to microservices in the Java EE ecosystem. The heart of the talk covers the key features of Java EE 8 such as HTTP/2, a complete security API overhaul, even stronger JSON support, support for HTML 5 Server-Sent Events (SSE), CDI 2, Bean Validation 2 and Java SE 8 alignment. The current slides for the talk are here (click here if you can't see the embedded slide deck):
Early in the evening I delivered my talk on Cargo Tracker/Java EE + DDD titled "Applied Domain-Driven Design Blue Prints for Java EE". This talk overviews DDD and describes how DDD maps elegantly to Java EE using code examples/demos from the Cargo Tracker Java EE Blue Prints project. Below is the slide deck for the talk (click here if you can't see the embedded slides):
The second day of the conference in the late afternoon Ivar delivered a deep dive into the MicroProfile initiative. Concurrent to his talk Heather delivered a talk on JCP and Adopt-a-JSR. Later in the afternoon Ivar delivered a talk on the upcoming MVC specification. For those unaware, MVC was originally slated for Java EE 8 and is now a separate, community led JSR.
Overall this was another great year at DevNexus and I hope to be part of the conference next year.
